Early Literacy Initiative

Early Literacy Initiative 2021-2022

Our Goal

We hope to 1) infuse our collection with a large amount of new early readers, 2) buy new furniture and play materials for the children's area, and 3) create online resources that parents, caregivers, and teachers can use to recommend titles to kids of various ages who are learning to read.


Alliant Energy gave us a grant of $1,000! This will help us buy books.


Jane Poelma donated $3,000 to help us buy new furniture! We'll share images when that furniture becomes available.
